I recently rewatched Breakfast at Tiffanys starring the graceful Audrey Hepburn.
She has been toiling my thoughts lately, more recently on Friday.
Friday, August 10th happened to be my 2nd year anniversary in France and the same day, The Witches gathered!
(my creative circle, which I renamed The Creative Coven, hence Witches!)
We had a potluck pool party complete with champagne! It was fabulous!
At one point, I tried on my friend's hat, and was told and I QUOTE - 'Ohhh, You look like Audrey Hepburn!'
What a kind compliment! I blushed and said Thank you, but on the inside, I was jumping for joy!
With that in mind, I remembered a quote and found two others Audrey said, which made me rethink beauty and poise.
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”
“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”
Beauty is as beauty does and she was/is beautiful!
Rest in peace, Audrey and Thank you!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
